John Cena made his return on december 27, 2016 show of Smackdown live which was the last SDLive of this year and he made it clear that he was there to make his presence felt. Now it being official that John Cena will face AJ Styles at Royal Rumble 2017, it might come as a spoiler to many that this match might go in AJ Style’s favor as they face again at Elimination Chamber 2017 in a 2-out of-3 falls match. The event is taking place live from Phoenix, Arizona, on February 12. This rumor turned into a certainty with the graphic below.
This definitely doesn’t make it certain that John Cena will lose at Royal Rumble 2017 and also it doesn’t give us a clear picture about AJ Styles losing. John Cena winning and AJ Styles challenging him for a rematch at Elimination Chamber looks more legit than John Cena losing and then getting another title shot which might not go down the throat of wwe universe so well. Having said that, The Undertaker is also an “A” factor in this rivalry who is rumored to face AJ Styles/John Cena at Wrestlemania 33. If The Undertaker faces John Cena then it might not come as a surprise if it is not for the WWE Championship because John Cena vs The Undertaker is enough for a huge match and doesn’t require a title.
On the other hand, AJ Styles might find a legit opponent in a new draft on SD Live, fitting the bill perfectly is Samoa Joe. Samoa Joe has made a huge impact in NXT and has almost nothing more left to prove there, so a WWE main roster debut at SD Live looks certain and having proven so much Joe might get a title shot at WWE Championship quick. This will definitely not raise any eyebrows as Joe is as lethal as it can be and his storylines and matches in NXT have been GLORIOUS.
Well nothing is for sure as many sources over the internet claim the Ticketmaster’s graphic to be a mistake but such mistakes do not happen often and these graphics are sent for promotional purposes to the arenas. We might have to wait and watch out for how WWE plans this up or is this just a tittle-tattle.
